got our first look today at the man accused of the worsz mass shooting in u.s. history-- the movie theater massacre in aurora, colorado. 24-year-old james holmes made his first court appearance, but from the looks of him, it wasn't entirely clear that he knew he was there. sitting next to one of his attorneys, his orange hair made him look like a character from the batman movies. as the judge spoke, holmes didn't seem to make eye contact. in fact, he didn't seem to follow the conversation at all. we have a team of correspondents covering this story. barry petersen was in the courtroom with holmes and, barry how did he seem in person? >> reporter: well, i have to say scott, it was really sort of eerie to be there. he seemed so unvovled. it was almost chilling, because we're talking about the fate of his life. frankly, i had a hard time taking my eyes off of him. you keep staring at that face, looking for some clue as to why this happened. he, on the other hand, seemed uninterested and when he was offered a chance to speak he turned it down. >> mr. holmes, do you have any questions a

we have spoken to has said we're not going to let this get us down. and that's the sentiment from everyone here. i almost hate to do this. i'm just going to go to the neighborhood where that shooter is, but i'm not going to go there now because it's not about him, this is about the people of aurora and the survivors. and i think we should linger on these pictures and talk a little bit more about what these folks are having to deal with. the president came here and very quickly hastily arranged trip. at first we weren't sure if he was going to come and speak. but he did speak to the people of aurora and quite frankly about an hour late. supposed to speak at 7:30 eastern, maybe more than an hour late. i can only imagine because he wanted to spend as much time as possible with people. and from every account, the president comforted the folks in the hospital and took as much time as he could to personally spend with him and speaying he would not mention the shooter's name. he started off reading from the bible, at least a reading from the bible. it was revelation 21:4, and he said, an
for joining us. "america live" right now. moments in a colorado courtroom where for the first time we are seeing the man accused of turning a movie theater into a killing field. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. here he is, accused mass murderer james holmes, appearing before a judge in a colorado courtroom just a short time ago. holmes with his bright orange hair looked wide-eyed and unshaven, his head bobbing slightly, closing his eyes, almost looking like he was falling asleep at points, saying absolutely nothing. he is accused of murdering 12 people and injuring 58. some of those badly hurt left with permanent injuries, that much is clear already. alicia a acuna is live outside of the courthouse where this took place, as i say, about an hour plus ago. alicia? >> reporter: hi, megyn. james holmes will be back in court in about one week to be advised of the formal charges, first-degree murder, the judge told him, will likely be among those charges today. holmes was kept away from the rest of the people in the courtroom, making his appearance from the jury box, ev
spellman in aurora for us. he was inside the courtroom when holmes appeared. jim, it was tough to get read on him during the appearance. i don't know if he was nodding off. i was talking to a guest who wrote the book on columbine who said we shouldn't be talking and reading too much into how he looked but how did he appear to you? >> reporter: you can't help but have this build up to what this guy will look like. we've only seen a couple of photos. the big question is would his hair be dyed red. we knew some police sources said that but none of the witnesses saw it because he had a helmet on and gas mask. that was the first thing on everybody's mind in there. when he walked in it was dead silent. nobody made any noise or called out. nothing like that. i was struck immediately by how lost he looked. he was slumped over and shackled. he walked with that shuffle. he looked defeated and lost. kind of sad looking. i didn't see any kind of swagger or anything like that in his demeanor. >> you mentioned he was shackled at his arms and legs. he always looked to be wearing a bullet proof vest. i kn
felon, that he was a lawful gun user and that he did not use guns. so the club's owner or, glenn, called james holmes to invite him to a orientation session so he could vet him in person. but when the answering machine picked up, he said the message was, quoting here, freakish. listen. >> i got this bizarre answering machine of his that was a very base, gutterral, growling, incoherent, rambling whatever it was, message that was bizarre at best, you know? freakish a little. >> reporter: he went on to say the message included some moaning and movie character-like squeals and laughter. somebody, he said, trying to be as weird as possible. that's when he told his staff if this guy shows up, do not let him join. listen again. >> yeah, yeah. this is kind of strange. this is not who, you know, a lot of shooters and gun people are. we're pretty basic, easy to deal with people. we don't get all bizarre and strange. so, yeah, it put up a flag to me that who is, what's -- what was he trying to accomplish with this? >> reporter: holmes never did show up, and when his wife first told him about the sh
interacted with the public or anybody else during the whole day. >> jim spellman from us in colorado. we will be hearing from the attorney for the james holmes family in san diego. that will happen in less than an hour. watch for that. i want to talk more about this with sunny hostin. let's talk more about it. jim is right. a lot of people were waiting to see if he would have that flame red dyed hair. he did. odd expressions. we can call them odd. it was a brief stop there in court. what did you take away from it? >> it's interesting. the legal question at this point in this proceedings and we know there will be many proceedings is whether or not he's competent, not insane but competent. does he understand the nature of the charges against him. the judge was talking about first-degree. he can't get out. he's held in solitary confinement. does he understand the nature of the charges against him and can he help his defense team in his defense? can he aid? i saw someone, if he's not malingering that seems incompetent at this time to stand trial. he was sort of very out of it. that could be
the use of some illicit substance or abuse of prescription medication to give that type of appearance. >> let's go to corbin dates, a witness in the second row of that theater. thank you for joining us tonight. what did you feel when you saw the picture of that guy in court today, corbin, james holmes. >> i'd say as soon as i was watching the trial on cnn today, i felt completely numb. i felt no emotion whatsoever when i was looking at the face of the gunman. >> did he look dangerous to you? did he remind you of what you saw in the theater? >> honestly, looking at his face, he looked like an average person that you would see probably at a mall or anywhere common. you would not put two and two together if you saw that person and if you were there that night. you would never know. >> compare him to what you saw, the two gentlemen, whatever you saw, compare him to what you saw in the theater the night that everything went horribly. >> the night in the theater, as soon as the door swung open and the person in black walked into the theater, this person had a stroll like he knew what was go
of people are with us and helping to share our burden of grief at this moment. >> reporter: a sunday vigil to help heal. in all, 12 are among the dead. a 6-year-old girl, a navy sailor, an air force reservist and two young men who died shielding their girlfriends from bullets. fathers, sons, daughters, each with lives cut short. the president addressed a grieving community and talked privately with families of the victims. >> my main task was to serve as a representative of the entire country and let them know we are thinking about them at this moment and will continue to think about them each and every day. >> reporter: the suspect, 24-year-old james holmes, today will be advised of his rights and the judge will set a date for the formal filing of charges. it's the start of a legal process that may take months. >> we will convict him. yes. >> reporter: at issue whether the prosecutor will seek the death penalty. the defense will likely argue whether holmes is mentally competent while the city is forever changed. evidence will include what was found inside the suspect's apartment, explosiv
